Expert Tips

  • Classic Tetrazzini consists of strips of cooked chicken combined with cooked spaghetti and a Parmesan cream sauce spiked with sherry. The casserole is sprinkled with bread crumbs and baked until it is brown and bubbly.
  • Sherry is a fortified wine originally from the southern Spanish town of Jerez. Fortified wines get their sweetness and strength from a dose of brandy or another spirit.
  • This recipe may be baked immediately after assembly. Bake at 350°F for 30 to 40 minutes, or until brown and bubbly.
